Nobility - Max.

Some dogs manage to strike a chord in the human heart that turns them from mere companions into fully fledged family members. Vigilant, faithful, devoted, loyal and true. One of these dogs is a rather noble fellow in South Africa. He's noble not only in stature but noble in character and noble in sprit. Sadly, this very loved family fellow is far from well . So today by the power of the internet you will find that a number of blogs around the world are imagining what it would be like to have him come and visit their homes and families. The two boyz contribution to this first of a kind cyber tour is to make space for Max alongside them in the back of the car en route to the boulangerie to pick up the mornings croissants and baguette - no greater honour can be granted to a dog visiting France. A gift of love on a day of love and a reminder that in loving animals like Max we really show how a moral life should be lived.


  1. Angus...
    .....oh dear, no more words! Just a simple, humble thanks!...
    How we would love one of those tasty croissants! (Okay...perhaps adding some Mopani worms - just for the joy of it all!)
    I have been incredibly, immensely and permanently touched by this amazing gesture of goodwill!
    With love for a happy day your side too.

  2. Now my girls are all going to want croissants! I hope you're happy!

    It looks like the boyz are showing Max a great time!
